Beef Stand looking to Black Braes and Windy Gyle
Beef Stand looking to Black Braes and Windy Gyle
An area of isolated rough grazing south of Beef Stand Hill. The name suggests cattle were kept here in days gone by. A remote area of a similar nature in the Moffat Hills is also called Beef Stand and was used as hiding place for stolen cattle in the historical days of the Reivers (Cattle Raiders) on the English-Scottish Border.
